OSPFv3

Hi

 

Which type of address does OSPFv3 use to form neighbor adjacencies and to send LSAs?
A. unicast IPv6 addresses
B. link-local addresses
C. multicast address FF02::5
D. unicast IPv4 addresses

 

I believe both link-local address and multicast address FF02::5 are used for the neighbor formation.

Can anyone give the one answer, question-wording are seems to be tricky for me.

Re: OSPFv3

Hello,

 

for the sake of verification, I configured two OSPF neighbors and ran a debug:

 

GigabitEthernet0/0 is up, line protocol is up
Link Local Address FE80::E39:1BFF:FED8:6000, Interface ID 2

 

*Dec 13 12:14:51.990: OSPFv3-1-IPv6 PAK : Gi0/0: OUT: FE80::E39:1BFF:FED8:6000->FF02::5: ver:3 type:4 len:64 rid:1.1.1.1 area:0.0.0.1 chksum:6492 inst:0

Re: OSPFv3

Hi @sivam siva 

 The answer is:

 

C. multicast address FF02::5

 

OSPF for IPv4 uses the multicast 204.0.0.5

OSPF for IPv6 uses the multicast FF02::5

Check this:
